    We moved down 5 spots, but I am thrilled that we kept our Tier 1 status! This is great news! Now our marketing department needs to run with it this year.

    Well I think that a Capital campaign for our endowment would do the trick. It's my understanding that is where we are lacking.

    Do you realize we're tied for last place in the top 75%. US News adopted some dubious ranking descriptors a few years ago. It's about like a college deciding it will no longer award A's, B's, C's, D's, and F's. If you earn a grade in the traditonal range of A to D, they say you got an A. If you make an F, they say you were auditing the course. Maybe this sells more college guides. I'm happy to be ahead of ULL and Clark Atlanta, but I'm not excited about it.

    Is there room to improve? Of course!

    You have to understand that the vast majority of those universities ranked ahead of us are either flagship or private. We are neither a flagship nor a private school, and there is nothing we can do to change that.

    To appreciate these rankings, you have to understand from where we have come. Under Reneau's leadership, Tech was upgraded from a regional master's university to a national doctoral research university and then again to a national research university with high research activity. We have elevated ourselves from being a regional university to a bottom quartile national university and then again to a third quartile national university. That is progress, and that is good news.

    This is a major accomplishment considering the bread crumbs we have received from the state government. Our ranking was truly earned. It's also amazing to think that we sustained our rankings after four consecutive years of continuous budget cuts. Look at all the resources that have been given to LSU, and then see that they aren't that far ahead of us.

    Excellent post with perspective on what we have done. There is a lot to be proud of particularly considering what TECH has had to achieve it with.

    Great post, 06. I think criticism of the current administration for lack of athletic focus is more than offset by their accomplishments on the academic side of the house. Each of us who hold degrees from Louisiana Tech can feel very proud at how they've increased in value. Especially us older Dawgs that graduated in the 80's.

    I hope whatever bumped us down 5 spots can be corrected and we return to an upward trajectory.

    Thanks for posting this info!

    Good points... With the proper hire, perhaps we can start growing the endowment and at least move into the middle of the third quartile over the next few years. By the way, we're getting closer and closer to being private. Over the last three years, direct state funding has dropped from covering 60% to just 40% of our budget. Don't be surprised if this assistance drops to just 25% in the near future.

    Their was a push May-June time frame along the line "Help Tech keep it's Tier 1 status give to the foundation/endowment"

    US News has it at just $63.3MM for 2011
